About Hasan

Connectors. Community builders. Mentors. Business lawyers. Strategic advisors.

Who We Are

The attorneys at Hasan have built their careers on the belief that the only way to practice good law is to practice good business. That is why we dedicate ourselves to every client as if we were their general counsel. We genuinely take the time to understand their business, including their past, present, and future. It’s the only way we can provide the best service and deliver the best results. We want to be more than good lawyers; we want to be good advisors and true partners.

Hasan strongly supports fostering access and equity in our community on multiple levels. The firm’s attorneys are community members and community leaders. In addition to our work in the legal and business communities, we are involved in the equity, diversity, and inclusion space (EDI) and the art community. The firm’s founder, Rehan K. Hasan, is a known leader in the EDI space, and he was given the “Highly Commended: Diversity & Inclusion Lawyer of the Year” award by Chambers USA in 2020, a prestigious and international legal industry organization.

Rehan Hasan, Partner

Meet Rehan

The client experience with Hasan feels different because it is different.

Rehan K. Hasan is dually educated in law and taxation, and the firm’s lawyers always approach matters from the perspective of both of these lenses. Rehan has personally founded two venture-backed corporations that both sold for profit. He works with his clients in the private equity space and also personally founded two venture capital funds.

Rehan Hasan brings the unique lens of entrepreneur, financier, and lawyer to each client engagement, taking his guidance far beyond the abilities of most business counsel.

Hasan designed and implemented a deferred compensation plan utilizing stock options (non qualified and qualified) that suited the needs of all parties. Armed with Hasan’s experience in tax, specifically section 409A and 83(b), the deferred compensation plan addressed and fulfilled the parties’ needs from a corporate, tax, and retention perspective.

Hasan worked closely with the client on the precise terms of the agreement drafting all the corporate documentation for this asset purchase deal while addressing and planning for numerous tax issues. The deal involved comprehensive documentation that not only protected their interests but also satisfied all parties involved. In facilitating the purchase, Hasan not only made the deal as tax-efficient as possible, but ensured a smooth closing for the client.
